About Rose Streaming

WHAT IS 'STREAMING'?
Think of it as a virtual movie rental. You purchase a ticket online, and then view the film on your computer, or on your TV by connecting it to your computer, either with an HDMI cable or digitally (see below).

HOW DO I STREAM TO MY TV?
The easiest way to get content from your computer to your TV is with an HDMI cable.  Simply connect your computer to your TV with the cable and you are set!

WHAT DO I DO IF I HAVE A BILLING/VIEWING PROBLEM?
Every streaming film we offer will be available through the individual distributor’s websites and streaming services. You’ll be taken to their website to purchase and watch the film, but a portion of your ticket will help support the Rose. You will be sent an email after your purchase with a streaming link for the film.

Technical questions should be directed to the support team for the streaming platform, generally by following the Help or Support link on the screening room page. Once you move off the Rose site we unfortunately cannot assist you with technical issues. For non-technical questions, contact rocky@rosetheatre.com.

-Open the movie on your device (computer or phone)
-At the bottom right of the screen you should see the casting icon. 
-If you don’t see that icon and you’re casting from a computer in the Chrome browser, you can open the menu in the upper right corner of the window (or the View menu) and select “Cast”.
-Once you select that button, it should give you the option to select a nearby device, so you’d then select your Chromecast. If you don’t see your Chromecast, make sure both devices are on the same wireless network
